Step 1 FEEL

1. Throwing the garbage in schools and classrooms. 2. Stench in classrooms. 3. Students taking more leave. 4. Students coming late to school. 5. Insufficient water supply to the students.

The stench in the classroom is chosen for solution, it caused the communicable disease spread among the students and teachers and reduces the attendance.

Students were more affected by this problem. We advised the students to the importance of cleanliness.

Step 2 IMAGINE

1. Come in clean uniform every day. 2. Take bath using soap daily. 3. Keep their hair, nails clean. 4. Wash their hands and legs after using toilet. 5. Keeping their teeth clean.

There is no enough water to wash their legs and hands after passing urine. In some, places, though there is water available, students don’t use it. (Lack of time, not used to it)

Step 3DO

We set up a 5 members committee to identify the cause. At the end of the discussion the group decided that it was the stench of urine. Then to find the cause of this, we observed the students going to the toilet. Then, when we keenly watched them, their feet, dresses and sandals were sprinkled by the drops of urine. We came to know that this is the cause of the stench in the classroom. Then, when we visited the toilet, we found another reason that spraying urine drops on the walls and floor and retarded drainage system. The committee decided to find a permanent solution by making urine tanks to alleviate odor in both places (classroom and toilet). The price of the original urine tank is very high, but the price of the tank which is going to be made by us is low. Because we use, much used, damaged and leaking container which was recycled. Then, we created the urinary tank by cutting the drawn portion with scissors and saw according to our needs and painted it. Then, we went to the toilet, cleaned it, painted the wall and set up the drainage system in such a way urine could easily exit through the pipes. The prepared urine tank was fixed in the appropriate places according to the height of the students. It was connected to the drainage pipe. Now, the safe toilet is ready for us to use. Then, we connected the drip irrigation pipes to clean the urinal tanks.

Now, without any hesitation, all the students are using the toilets in a safe manner. Currently, there is no stagnant of urine and no odour in the toilet. Like that, there is no stench in the classroom also and there is no chance for urinary infections and reduce in attendance. We have implemented this not only in our school but also in other schools and CRC centres, where the teachers gathered and created awareness. This project can be implemented not only in schools, but also in houses and public places. Because these prices are very affordable, light weight and durable, it is easy to implement in any places. We can prevent urinary infections and stenches by implementing in various places. This will reduce the number of patients in the community. Through this project, we can make the country clean and hygienic.

More than 100

Affected people assured us to use this method in their houses and nearby schools. Village Chairman assured to implement this in public places. 1. All the other school students and teachers surprised and praised us for this performance in our school. 2. The Village head, the Ex-Headmistress (National Award Teacher) visited our scheme in person and praised us. She gave us some gifts and promised to bear all the expenses to extend this method.

1. We were at some financial needs to access this scheme. For that, students collected money from the teachers and students of our school. 2. We needed 20 liters container for this project, so we approached the seller of water container and explained about this project. He congratulated us and gave some 20 liters containers to us at free of cost. His shop is about 10 kilometers away from our school.

MORE THAN 30 DAYS

Step 4 SHARE

We gave awareness through nearby schools and explained by using projector in CRC Centres, where all the teachers gathered together, and used a 20 lit container for doing a practical work on it. We gave awareness by practical works to Village Educational Team, schools and houses at the rural and in public places to activate this procedure in their places. 1. All the other school students and teachers were surprised and praised us for this performance in our school. 2. People of this place assured us to activate this procedure at their houses and public places. 3. Village Educational Committee and important persons of this area visited our project, gave us prizes and assured to help financially for the new schemes of the students.

We can prevent urinary infections and stenches by implementing in various places. This will reduce the number of patients in the community. Through this project, we can make the country clean and hygienic. We can use this container for many purposes. We use this as a dustbin in schools and classrooms as a water bucket, scrub sweeps and so on. When the other schools are using this, the expenses of the school will be reduced, and the students will think about their new ideas like this. We can take this chance to express the thinking of the students and can observe the motive of the scheme CLEAN INDIA by sending this scheme to all kind of students (Like schools, Colleges etc…) Clean India, a step more towards Cleanliness. Thank you.
